Tricklock’s Cloud Cover
Last run of shows begins tonight
By Sam Adams [ Thu Oct 6 2011 3:26 PM ]
Writer Christie Chisholm reviewed Elsa Menéndez’ one-person performance in this week’s Alibi. Described as “a collection of patches that ultimately—when pieced together—create a remarkable quilt,” Cloud Cover, or Conversations With Harry is a storytelling piece wherein Menéndez entertains patrons with heartfelt anecdotes from her past. All of this takes place in a theater setting that is constructed to feel more like someone’s kitchen. Tonight’s show takes place at The Tricklock Space (1705 Monte Vista) at 8 p.m. Seating is limited, but there are five more performances scheduled through Sunday.

Skeletons in the Trailer
Performer tackles love lost and suicide notes with dark humor
By Summer Olsson
Christina Slyter’s new solo show is about a woman who has become a shut-in, terrified of the outside world, because her husband killed himself—yet it’s full of dark humor. “The show takes place on the night that she wakes up,” Slyter says, “and discovers that there are people in her house. She tries to be a good hostess to them and show them a good time ... “ The audience members are the visitors in her house, and as the woman gets closer to revealing truths, her hostess skills unravel.

Longtime ensemble theater group finds new home
By Sam Adams
The typical formula for theatergoing is pretty simple in the States: You buy a ticket, are ushered to a seat, eat your Toblerone, watch the show and are ushered out. Aside from clapping, the experience is about as interactive as a game of solitaire.

Talking ’Bout a Revolution
Theater from Albuquerque to Armenia
By Christie Chisholm
Winter is cold and dark and sleepy. It turns people into marshmallow-shaped hermits, wrapping and zipping themselves into enough layers to survive brief intervals of the outside world before retreating back into their slightly warmer caves. But for three weeks in January, Revolutions International Theatre Festival brings a load of light and warmth.

So we didn't spend a whole article (at right) listing the times and places for the plethora of cool theater stuff during Revolutions, this week’s Culture Shock space had to pay the ultimate price.

A Tale of Betrayal
Tricklock weaves a tangled web
By Christie Chisholm
In Traitors, things are not as they seem.
The original script by Tricklock Company member Kristen D. Simpson weaves together the stories of Benedict Arnold, Judas Iscariot and Sen. Joseph McCarthy. On the surface, the play is a reflection on the nature of betrayal, patriotism and forgiveness. But there’s another surprising current that sweeps through the show. Religion is the undertone of the production, and its presence left me more than a little confused.

Long Live the Revolution
The 10th annual Revolutions International Theatre Festival
By Julia Mandeville
The mark of brilliance may just be that it stays with you. It affects the way you think about something or, perhaps, the way you look at everything. You contemplate it after you’ve engaged with it. Your future actions and interactions are, in some regard, altered by having experienced it. As it so happens, this is also the mark of revolution. Coincidence? Certainly not in the case of the Revolutions International Theatre Festival.
